Eagles Golf Club is a Semi-Private, 36 hole golf facility located in Odessa, Florida. The facility has two 18-hole golf courses. They are The Forest Course and The Lakes Course.
The Forest Course at Eagles Golf Club
Eagles Golf Club, The Forest Club opened in 1995. Noted golf course architect, PGA Tour professional and NBC-TV commentator Gary Koch and master architect Rick Robbins are responsible for the front nine of The Forest Course, while noted architect Ron Garl designed the back nine.
Accuracy is a premium on this course, with its highly contoured fairways and well placed, meticulous greens. This course measures 6,700 yards and features the signature island-green, par-3 sixth hole, which rivals the famous 17th hole at TPC at Sawgrass in Jacksonville.
The third hole of The Forest is a "fun" hole. This short par-4 invites eagles and double eagles. It is reachable from the tee with a well-placed long drive; however, the player choosing to "go for it" faces a formidable task. Water down the entire right side and a green surrounded by bunkers make a lay-up the far less risky choice.
The back nine of The Forest has several holes which are not only challenging but are as beautiful as any holes in golf. The 10th is a reachable par-5 carved from a dense forest. This hole challenges the golfer from the tee and also on the approach. The Forest is also famous for its 13th hole, dubbed "Lake Michigan" because of the large lake guarding the green. A par here is equal to a birdie on most other holes. The 17th hole - known as "the partner's hole" - has met with rave reviews. Water down the left side from tee to green, woods to the right and a firm, fast fairway create a hole that appears wide open but requires skill and precision to play well.
